The Women’s Coalition of Cortland County has cancelled its September 22 “Meet the Candidates” forum in Cortland for the Congressional District 22 race.
The Coalition says Congresswoman Claudia Tenney still hadn’t confirmed whether or not she would participate in the forum as of her Sept 13 deadline.
Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi accepted the Coalition’s invitation when it was first sent out last month.
The September 29 forum for NYS Senate District 51 and Assembly District 126 candidates will proceed as planned, including a livestream-watch event at SUNY Cortland.
All four candidates, who represent the Republican and Democratic Parties, also committed last month to participate.
NYS Senate District 51:
James L. Seward (Republican, Conservative, Independence, and Reform parties) and
Joyce St. George (Democratic and Women’s Equality parties).
NYS Assembly District 126:
Keith Batman (Democratic, Working Families, and Women’s Equality parties) and
Gary D. Finch (Republican, Conservative, Reform, and Independence).
